Circular attachment suits MC9900
One of Libby’s Pinata circles
All of the applique, decorative stitching AND quilting in the above wall hanging was done using the JANOME CIRCULAR ATTACHMENT.
A few weeks ago I featured some of the NEW JANOME products that are now available for purchase at your local JANOME DEALER (on 24th April to be exact – look for the post entitled NEW FEET & ACCESSORIES). Amongst that batch of wonderful new goodies available for you to use with your JANOME sewing machines was the CIRCULAR ATTACHMENT FOR EASY SET BOBBIN MACHINE MODELS. I thought I would list all the Circular attachments that are available for our various JANOME MACHINES so that you may ask your local JANOME DEALER for the one compatible with your JANOME machine.
I digitized the centers of the 4 hourglasses in JANOME DIGITIZER MBX & then embroidered my designs in the hoop on the blocks that I had previously pieced with an hour glass pattern. You will notice there is applique as part of the embroidery design. This was done IN THE HOOP of the JANOME EMBROIDERY MACHINE (small enough to be done in the smaller hoop on most of our Janome Embroidery machines.) The CIRCULAR ATTACHMENT WAS USED FOR THE QUILTING around the embroidery on each block. I don’t know about you but I sure do not trust myself to sew perfect circles free-hand! But I DO trust the JANOME CIRCULAR ATTACHMENT to sew a perfect circle for me!
This is a close-up showing the circles of quilting done with the JANOME CIRCULAR ATTACHMENT. This was done AFTER the embroidery, after I had sewn all the blocks together & sandwiched my quilt layers. I slipped the quilt onto the pin of the JANOME CIRCULAR ATTACHMENT making sure the pin went through the exact center of each appliqued circle/hourglass block. Then a simply used straight stitching and let the CIRCULAR ATTACHMENT do the work for me: it feeds my quilt in a circle. NO marking needed, NO need to hold my breath and hope for the best………… just the JANOME tool working for me. WHEW – this is the way I like it!
I need to tell you up front that these CIRCULAR ATTACHMENTS are for JANOME TOP LOADING BOBBIN machines only. If your JANOME sewing machine is a front loading bobbin machine, then you would need to ask your local JANOME DEALER to show you the FLOWER STITCHER as that is the closest sort of attachment that we can offer for these models. Alternatively, you may like to ask your local JANOME DEALER to show you any of our top loading bobbin machines as all of these will accommodate the optional accessory: the CIRCULAR ATTACHMENT. You may then consider buying one of our JANOME machines which has a top loading bobbin.
THE NEW CIRCULAR ATTACHMENT FOR EASY SET BOBBIN MACHINES – currently that would be the JANOME MC9900. NOTE THE SCREW TO THE RIGHT WHICH SECURELY FASTENS THE CIRCULAR ATTACHMENT TO THE NEEDLE PLATE
